For Christmas this year my amazing in-laws wanted to bless me with a few days off from cooking. They weren’t quite sure what I actually could eat so they asked me to email them a list.
I thought I’d publish it here too so people could get an idea of what AIP can look like after a few reintroductions. I’m planning to stay where I’m at for now and not reintroduce anything else for a few months. I also shared what stores I usually find things at and thought I’d keep those on here too 🙂
My biggest issue w/ meat seems to be from animals that have been fed a lot of soy.
The chicken from Vitamin Cottage doesn’t bother me. Sometimes Whole Foods will have a soy free pastured chicken available but not always. I can have 100% grass fed beef. This is all they sell at Vitamin Cottage, Trader Joes has some in the frozen section and Whole Foods has some too (Sprouts might as well). I can have bison as well. You can’t force feed bison grains so they’re always grass fed. Costco has ground bison in the meat section and Whole Foods/ Sprouts/ Vitamin Cottage should have it too. I can also have wild caught salmon as long as it doesn’t have anything added to it. I usually buy the wild orca brand from Vitamin Cottage or the stuff from Trader Joes I told you about today. I can also have the Trader Joes brand prosciutto & Wild Pacific canned sardines in Olive Oil. (I’ve also learned to love and embrace organ meats- ha!)
I can only do small amounts of raw dairy. Vitamin Cottage sells Sierra Nevada brand raw goat cheese that I can have, I can also have the Grazers brand raw cow cheese from Vitamin Cottage. I’m sure Whole Foods has some too but I don’t really go there.
No fruit at all right now.
The Enjoy Life chocolate chips or local raw honey are all I can have right now- they have both at Vitamin Cottage.
Any of these Paleo on the Go Meals:
There you have it- everything I can eat in a nice little list 🙂 In some ways it looks really short and sad to me and in other ways it seems like a lot.
